Hans Martin new Grameenphone chief corporate affairs officer

Telecom operator Grameenphone (GP) has appointed Hans Martin Henrichsen of Norway as the company’s new chief corporate affairs officer (CCAO).

He will replace Ole Bjorn Sjulstad on May 15. Hossain Sadat has been playing the role of an acting CCAO before this announcement.

Earlier, Hans served as CCAO of Telenor Myanmar and played a “critical role in running its operation during the most challenging times.”

He comes with extensive experience in building and maintaining Telenor’s international business portfolio, and business case modelling for mobile licence acquisition.

Hans has been involved in almost all of Telenor’s operations in Asia over the last 20 years.

Previously he played the role of the chief country officer in Bangladesh from 2014 to 2018, which gives him a great deal of understanding of the local context and business environment.

GP CEO Yasir Azman said, “Hans Martin’s deep understanding of the business environment and regulatory dynamics will help us set the right strategic direction for the best interest of our customers, shareholders and stakeholders.”

Hans said, “Bangladesh and Grameenphone are very close to my heart. I am excited to be back in one of the most thrilling and dynamic telecom markets and look forward to joining the winning team again to unfold the next chapter of digitalisation in Bangladesh.”
